Each year, the Concord Multicultural features a full lineup of performances, food vendors, craft vendors, artists and activities that represent more than 30 cultures from around the world, presented by folks who live and work locally.
Our food vendors are immigrant owned restaurants and local community members who share their culture through the delectable dishes of their home countries, or their ancestors' countries.
As you stroll down Capitol Street during the Festival, your taste buds will delight in flavors from around the world!
We are very fortunate to have a partnership with the New Hampshire Food Bank. All food is prepared in the Food Bank's commercial kitchen under the supervision and support of the Food Bank's Chefs and culinary students from the Recipes for Success Program.
Chef Jayson and Chef Paul work closely with the Festival committee and the new American food vendors to not only ensure food safety, but to provide support with menu planning and pricing, food preparation and service and other training that provides a valuable vocational experience for new Americans.
These experiences have led to opportunities for several new Americans to participate in other events to cook and sell food, and inspired them to pursue their own culinary business ventures.
PLEASE NOTE IMPORTANT CHANGES:
We've made a few changes to the food vendor area in order to improve the experience for the attendees and vendors.
We have partnered with Merrimack County Conservation District to provide a "VOUCHER SYSTEM" for purchasing food. Please stop by the Welcome Tent or one of the MCCD booths to purchase your vouchers, which you will use to purchase food from the vendors. Vouchers are the same value as cash.
